The problem I had with the black, plastic trim was that it had gradually contracted in length over the years so that the adhesive aging and losing contact was not the only cause for it to slowly separate from the plywood bulkhead. This was principally at the top corners on the curves where it pulled away to take a short cut due to its shortened length. Even re-sticking it with new contact adhesive didnít last long, consequently, to ensure it stretched back in length enough and stayed in place I resorted to screws with black, load-spreading washers arching round the curves. But it looked truly awful and, being into the plywood end grain it was not a piece of work to be proud of.

Anders tip is a brilliant solution that is obvious when you think about it and probably easier to implement than farting around with that infuriating piece of strip.

I had always thought it strange; that cheap and nasty piece of plastic edge right next to the magnificent, massive piece of solid teak that forms the mast compression strut Ė really weird.
